Philippe & Claudie Vintage Sardines in Olive Oil

Sustainably fished, filleted and canned by hand. Site Remarquable Du Gout.


Philippe’s Sardines come directly from the harbour of Saint-Gilles-Croix-de-Vie, the only French harbour to have obtained the prestigious “Site Remarquable du Goût” award. The sardines are fished at the best time of the season following sustainable fishery practices. According to tradition they are trimmed by hand, placed one by one in beautiful tins designed by artists and covered with extra virgin olive oil. High quality sardines are like good wine. They improve with time (up to 10 years) and will slowly confit in the oil and reach their full flavour. We offer two different vintages of Philippe’s Sardines: 2014 (two years old) and 2012 (4 years old). It is fun to taste them next to each other! They are delicious already but will easily keep, and improve, till 2024!!!!

Shelf Life

Philippe & Claudie's Sardines will keep for up to 10 years, unopened at room temperature. Turn the tin every 6 months and your sardines will get better as they age! Once open keep refrigerated and consume within 3 days.

How to use

If you want to keep and age them, store them in a cool dark place and turn the tin every 6 months to make sure the sardines are evenly bathing in the olive oil. If you want to enjoy them now, just serve them at room temperature with their flavourful oil. Whether you eat them as-is or you debone them first is a question of preference!
